Default Transformers

Just got back from Transformers and it is one amazing movie!
The special effects were some of the best i have ever seen!
Overall i give the movie a 9 out of 10 (but i have never seen a 10 movie ). The script could've been better IMO and some of the acting was pretty shiitty.
One thing i did notice that i didn't like was the way GM sneaked there cars into the movie. You couldn't go 5 minutes in the movie with out seeing a GM car/truck stuck in the movie somehow.

If you were debating weather or not to see it in theaters i HIGHLY recommend seeing it on the big screen. It is worth the outrageously high ticket prices.

How many other people saw it tonight??

Its not playing here until after mid-night. I'll be taking the grandson during the day tomorrow. I'm glad you liked it, a review I read said the plot sucked but had alot of action to make it bearable at least. Heck, thats all a man needs.. a little action now and then. LOL

Yesterday the local news here did a story about all the GM cars in the movie. Did you guys know that GM actually didn't have anything to do with the product placement and they spent no money on this (I'm sure GM provided the vehicles free or charge ). Apparently the director chose to use GM vehicles because they met he'* different needs for the different scenes. If he needed a sexy sport car for a chase, GM had it, or a big huge truck, GM had it and so on. So GM is really excited about this, if the Bonneville was still around I'm sure a GXP would have been in the movie

Is this the first time you've noticed product placement in a movie? Espeially cars. They always seem to stick to the same brand, or family of brands, in every movie, or TV series

Cool to know GM didn't iniate it. I mean, you can't fault a company for advertising, but it'* much easier to accept it when they don't force it.

I saw it on the digital screen at the movie theater and all i can say is WOW. it was like watching a blue ray disk on a huge screen. none of the grainy-ness or distorted sound of a regular movie, although, i really hope it makes it to imax. can't wait for the next one to come out.
